Indiana's statewide smoking ban becomes effective Sunday
#1 Jun 30, 2012
If they would just make cigarettes illegal, smoking would not be an issue. Yes they are addictive but if they weren't so easy to access then it would be easier for people to quit. They should ban the sell of tobacco products but they won't because they get rich off of others addictions.
Since: Nov 11

It will never happen. The politicians are addicted to revenue and tobacco generates enough revenue to be considered a cash cow.
The black market is alive and well with cigarette sales due to the insane tax levels, and would only get bigger if tobacco was made illegal (what other consumer product has a 3 or 400% tax over the unit price). As examples look at how easy drugs are to buy. Read about the 18th Amendment and how that worked out for the US. Just about every state that I am aware of requires people who purchase cigarettes to be at least 18 years old. Yet underage people still get them - even though it is illegal. How can that be?
In a perfect world all addictive substances would be gone but the real world prevails.
